is simply swimming along the surface of the water and looking down at the oceanic activity below you. No special skills or training is required, and the equipment needed to do it is minimal. Snorkeling doesn’t require any training. If you are able to swim you’ll be able to enjoy the activity by simply slipping on your snorkeling gear and entering the water. Someone who has never snorkeled before can be a pro within minutes. More advanced swimmers can dive down little ways while snorkeling, but they can stay underwater only as long as they can hold their breath. Snorkeling requires much less equipment; a mask that allows you to see the wonders of the underwater world, and a snorkeling breathing tube, typically 16 inches long, that allows you to submerge your face in the water while still being able to access the air above. Some snorkelers may want to use foot fins as well to move faster and with less effort on the surface.
